Corporate Counsel Classic Golf and Networking Event

The 4th Annual Corporate Counsel Classic, held in conjunction with the ACC Annual Meeting, took place in Washington D.C. on October 14, 2017.  The Classic is the premier golf, spa and networking event in the legal community and this year was no exception.  With appreciation for all of our sponsors, a special thank you goes out to our Golf Title Sponsor, Adams and Reese; and our Wellness Title Sponsor, Littler, for making the day extra special for our guests.

This year we were excited to add "Professional Development in Motion" and feature two amazing coaches: Paula T. Edgar and Eleanor Beaton who provided a unique coaching experience on the shuttle rides to both the golf and spa venues. We hope you enjoyed your time spent with friends of the Foundation. We certainly appreciate all of your support, which allows the Foundation to further its mission to serve the needs of the in-house bar, while providing support to diverse bar associations and supporting pro-bono initiatives. This year we are happy to report that proceeds from the Classic also went to help American Red Cross disaster relief efforts around the country. You can still help us in that cause by Donating Here.
